What is the fractional CO2 Acupulse treatment?
CO2 Acupulse is the most advanced and efficient technology to treat photo aging, wrinkles, irregular skin texture, scars and stretch marks. More powerful, safer and capable of penetrating deeper than any other CO2 laser on the market, the CO2 Acupulse is a laser that offers exceptional results.
Who is the CO2 Acupulse treatment for?
The CO2 Acupulse treatment is foremost adapted for people wishing to treat wrinkles and ridules, scars and acne scars, as well as stretch marks. It is safe and efficient and is perfect for those needing a tightening of the skin grain, rejuvenation of the skin texture, improvement of acne scars and skin tone. The ideal treatment zones include the face, eyelids, hands, neckline, and the body.
How does the CO2 Acupulse treatment work?
The CO2 Acupulse laser creates microscopic channels in the skin and then lets natural healing do the work. Its light beam penetrates deep and allows a remodeling and auto-healing of the tissues. These micro channels are created without damaging the surrounding tissue, allowing the treated area to heal quicker and renew the skin collagen. The CO2 Acupulse laser triggers the natural healing process by replacing damaged tissue with smoother, firmer, and repaired skin.
What are the steps of the treatment? Is it painful? Are there secondary effects?
We begin by applying an anesthetic cream that will remain on the skin for 1 hour to allow for a more comfortable treatment. Following a treatment with the CO2 Acupulse laser you can expect 7 to 10 days of redness resembling a sunburn, followed by a peeling of the dead cells, before the skin is fully healed. The healing is accelerated by the application of a hydrating and repairing skin treatment protocol. Sun exposure is to be avoided between treatments and up to 3 weeks after the last treatment.
How many treatments will be required? How quickly will the results become visible?
The CO2 Acupulse, with its efficiency, diminishes the number of sessions required. One session of the new CO2 Acupulse laser is equivalent to two sessions of the previous technologies.
Depending on the initial state of the skin and the desired results, we must plan for 2 to 4 sessions of about 30 minutes each. The sessions happening at a 3 to 4 weeks interval.
For the majority of patients, results are visible as of the first session, but the full results show up progressively over the 12 weeks following treatments.
What is the duration of the benefits? Is maintenance required?
The rejuvinating benefits of the CO2 Acupulse treatment are considered permanent and long-lasting. That being said, this treatment does not stop the internal biological clock and the normal aging of the skin. Therefore, an occasional maintenance, see yearly, could be recommended to prevent the effects of time.
Can the fractional co2 treatment be combined with other treatmeants like injections?
The CO2 Acupulse treatment is regularly combined with treatments by hyaluronic acid injection, like the Juvederm, Restylane, Teosyal as well as other laser and surgical techniques in order to obtain optimal global results.
